Masked Man With Sword Attacks Tow Truck Driver

By Jason Pohl | The Coloradoan

A Fort Collins man could face felony charges after he reportedly donned a gas mask and flak jacket and used a samurai-style sword to attack a tow truck driver Sunday evening.

A tow truck was called about 7 p.m. Sunday to Pier Apartments, 4501 E. Boardwalk Drive in Fort Collins, to remove a vehicle that was illegally parked and was blocking another vehicle, Sgt. Dean Cunningham said.

As the driver from H&K Towing prepared the truck for transport, 27-year-old Jeremiah Proctor came out of the building dressed in a gas mask, ballistic helmet and Kevlar vest, wielding a samurai-style sword, Cunningham said.

Proctor "swung the sword at the tow truck driver, sliced one of the truck's tires and tried to stab the driver," Cunningham said.
